Destiny 2 Farming Made Easy
Whether you’re a novice or an altogether experienced player, Destiny 2 Farming can sometimes be a finicky process. That’s OK, though. With the app developed by Pedro Henrique, a systems analyst from Brazil, farming has never been so simple. How? It brings together tips and tutorials from all over the internet so that players can complete Destiny 2 activities with ease.
No matter how often you play Destiny 2, there’s always the slight chance that you might miss out on certain activities that provide fertile grounds for farming. That’s precisely what Pedro had in mind when he first conceptualized his farming tool. The more tokens and planetary materials you farm, the more chances you’ll have to gather better weapons, items, cosmetics, and the like. The better weapons you have, the greater the edge you’ll gain over other players.

(1) Tell us about yourself (name/nickname, hometown, age, occupation, favorite games that you play and what platform(s) you play)?
My name is Pedro Henrique and I live in a small town in Brazil. I am 34 years old and I am a Systems Analyst specialized in web and mobile development. I play often on PS4 with the nickname phcpinheiro. I’ve always liked RPG and first-person shooter games. I split my time today between Destiny 2, Diablo 3, Elder Scrolls, Battlefield and the like.
(2) Do you work independently or in a team? If in a team, how big is it?
Today, I work completely independently, as a software consultant and solitary developer, (sniff ).
(3) What inspired you to create an app specifically for this game? When did it cross your mind to create your app?
A game like Destiny always forces the player to search for ways to complete the most challenging activities. I got tired of looking for that one tip or guide on multiple sites and watching lots of videos until I figured out how to do it. So, I thought there should be an app centralizing all this so that players can save study time and focus on where it matters—the game itself!

(4) What programming language or tool did you use to create this app? Do you have any favorite PLs or tools in particular?
(5) When it comes to designing the user experience/UX of the app, what motivated you or what influences did you have?
I try to deliver the simplest approach possible, never forgetting to use visual elements that refer to the game. In my usability and UX classes, these practices have always been the ones that bring the user closer to the App goal. We can never underestimate the power of simplicity.
(6) From the developer’s and gamer’s perspective, how do you think the app affects the overall experience of the game?
At first, I created this app for novice players. Over time, the app has been getting potential for experienced and frequent players as well. The game Destiny has activities in periods of time that we players always need to stay tuned to. And the App notifies us of all these time windows, saving a lot of time. Over time, it all comes down to common sense, but we’ll always need notifications and changes that the gameplay suffers over time.
(7) Is there any margin of error when it comes to the app’s performance and provided information?
Yes, there is a small margin of error. Mainly because I work completely alone during my off-hours, and sometimes the game fixes some problem or changes some element, and I do not have the time and luxury to update the app on the same day. But I appreciate that most of my users are patient and understand my situation.
(8) What were your biggest challenges for this project? How did you overcome them?
Initially, I created this app for the public of Brazil. So, I decided to add the English language to reach more people. As it turned out, more than 60% of my users are from the United States. That was a challenge at the time because English is not my native language. But it was not so difficult to overcome, because we frequent players also need to study several languages, right?
(9) Are you expecting the game’s expansions to change your app’s dynamics and performance? Is it something that you’ve already prepared to tackle?
Of course, and I always try to prepare myself for it! Whenever the game gets some new content, it drives the audience of my app. In this last expansion, Forsaken, I released content in my app even before the expansion itself hit the platforms.

(10) Are there any exciting new developments for your app that you would care to share?
Forsaken brought great changes to the game economy. Relived game modes and added new forms of activities. I’m starting to focus on bounties, adding tips on how to complete faster.
(11) Could you share a few quick tips to new players of the game?
For those who are coming now, it is a good idea to have a search routine and locations to look for tips on the game. Be it via apps like mine, or through specialized YouTube channels. Games like Destiny, which require constant updating of knowledge, are only fully utilized when the player is dedicated to studying to improve his gameplay.
(12) Any advice you’d like to share to aspiring game app or web developers?
If you are a developer or enthusiast, do not shy away from your hobbies and tastes simply by promises of money. Great results come when you are committed to doing the things you love. I even took years to start developing in the gaming area. Today, my App does not give me a big cash return, but the biggest payback I’ve ever had is the satisfaction I get from creating it.
Simplicity: Farming in its Purest Form
Simplicity works. The fastest way to get from point A to point be, after all, is a straight line. It’s exactly the inspiration that sparked the creation process for Pedro’s app. Destiny 2 players will forever be indebted to him for making Destiny 2 Farming as simple, fun, and enjoyable as can be.
